There’s something magical about making meatloaf in a muffin tin. Maybe it’s the cute-factor of having your own personal little muffin of meaty-goodness? Or maybe it’s the fact that each little meatloaf bakes-up so moist and flavorful!
Whatever it is that makes my family go crazy for these veggie-laden meatloaf muffins, I’m all about serving healthy foods that bring a smile to their sweet faces – and the sweet faces in your home too!
Chock-full of healthy veggies, these mini-meatloaves are super simple to make and not only make a delicious dinner, but also a great lunch too! Their compact size helps them pack-up nicely in your favorite bento-style lunch boxes – and no need to reheat, since they taste great cold too!
So, rather than shopping on this glorious Cyber Monday, I’m in the kitchen making Cyber Monday Meatloaf Muffins – may sound silly, but it’s true!
Like Cyber Monday, these mini-meatloaves will save you time (you can make them on a weekend and reheat for a quick weeknight dinner, or freeze them for an easy future meal), and they’ll save you money (ground meat is one of the most economical cuts and you can use any veggies you have on hand).
So why not join me in a little meatloaf making fun?
P.S. You can make these savory little meatloaf muffins even more fun, if you tell your kiddos that they’re actually “Meatloaf Cupcakes!” Cause seriously, who doesn’t love cupcakes? And while we’re at it, why not call the mashed potatoes – “frosting” and the sweet peas – “sprinkles.”
I’m all for bringing a little creativity to the table to help kids learn that healthy eating is delicious and fun!
